IndustrySafe, a leader in safety management software, announced the release of its initial incidents form to the IndustrySafe mobile app. This app, first launched in December of 2017, now allows workers to record workplace incidents from their mobile devices, with or without internet access.
Designed for field use, the IndustrySafe mobile app provides employees incident app basic information with the ability to perform safety audits and inspections at job sites and remote locations. With this update, users now have the option to record initial incident data on their mobile devices. When recording an incident, employees can quickly take and attach photos to forms, pinpoint their exact GPS location and create corrective actions on the spot for identified issues.
“At IndustrySafe, we understand that each company’s safety challenges are unique,” states Gabe Tompkins, IndustrySafe’s Vice President of Technology. “With this in mind, we developed this update to allow system administrators to configure which modules are available to users, so that frontline employees can record either incidents, inspections, or both, depending upon the needs of their company. Users with access to record both incidents and inspections will also be able to seamlessly toggle between the two modules as often as they need to,” he adds.
Initial Incident forms can be submitted to the IndustrySafe software for detailed analysis and investigation by key team members as soon as web access is available. Safety professionals can then complete additional incident forms and generate regulatory reports, including OSHA recordkeeping logs and DOT accident registers. With the data provided by the IndustrySafe mobile app, companies can compare safety and health indicators across modules, calculate incident rates, view inspection completion rates and more.
“Without the use of mobile technology, workers in the field can spend a considerable amount of time collecting incident and inspection data, and then sometimes must work to file or re-enter this information into disparate databases,” explains Clare Epstein, IndustrySafe’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our goal for this update was simple. We wanted to enable organizations to efficiently record incidents and inspections on the go without burdening employees with multiple tools or applications,” she adds.
The mobile app and its new incident recording feature is available at no additional cost to subscribers of IndustrySafe’s Incidents or Inspections modules. Customers may download the app from the App Store® and Google Play™ for iPhone and Android devices.
